Summary

Bouncy Bullets is a game that’s meant to be played at a great speed, jump and shoot to reach the exit is the gist of it all. On your way you will need to avoid obstacles and shoot enemies using your colorful bullets, simple concept, yellow kills yellow and pink kills pink. Don’t shoot the grey ones and all is good. If you do mess up its almost an instant restart. Now this is all fine but the actual levels are short and simple, the trophies are basically given to you for just existing and the game lacks variation or replay value. Its a game for trophy hunters and the stackable platinum is a testament to that. It will take under an hour easily to see everything the game has and you won’t be back but if you like it simple and love being rewarded for that then bouncy bullets have you well and truly covered.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
